"hate something bad"?

When I was netsurfing the other day I came across this sentence.

"I hate him so bad, and don't want to talk to him any more."

First, does this sentence sound correct? I wasn't quite sure about the usage of the word "bad" as an adverb... modifying the verb "hate." And next, which of the following sound natural/unnatural to you?

1. I hate it so bad.
2. I hate it very bad.
3. I hate it very much.
4. I hate it so much.
5. I hate it so badly.
6. I hate it very badly.

The number four (4) is correct for me, because it sounds well

"I hate him so bad" isn't grammatically correct, but it's common to hear such a phrase in certain AmE vernaculars.

3 and 4 sound the most natural to me, with 4 being my top choice.

The only ones I'd ever use are these.

3. I hate it very much.
4. I hate it so much.

I'd usually choose 4 because it seems to have more feeling. The other's are commonly used but sound quite uneducated to me.

Thanks guys for your replies. As an ESL student I think I should intentionally use the grammatically correct ones... which would be 3 or 4:D
